Personnel Files: Anne-Marie Slaughter rejoins New America

The New America Foundation announced today that Anne-Marie Slaughter has rejoined its Board of Directors.

Slaughter, who left the board in 2009 to take a position as Director of Policy Planning at the State Department, also recently returned to Princeton University following her departure from the State Department earlier this year. She had previously been Dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

At the State Department, Slaughter was the main driving force in implementing the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, modeled after the Defense Department’s Quadrennial Defense Review.

“We were sorry, if also proud, that Anne-Marie’s service at State meant that she had to step down from New America’s board,” Foundation President Steve Coll said in a released statement, “and we are thrilled now to have her back. Anne-Marie’s deep, original thinking about globalization, technology, economics and foreign policy have been prescient and influential. Her intellectual leadership has been important to New America and we look forward to more.”

Allen McDuffee writes about politics and policy and covered think tanks for The Washington Post from 2011 to 2013. He freelances and hosts a podcast at and is currently working on a book about the influence of think tanks in Washington.
